[personal profile] sarahbyrdd  Last time I made this.

This week the Times sent around this:

Wouldn't you know, it's the same recipe.

Still no buttermilk lurking in the house, so this time I used a combination of milk and sour cream.  That can't be bad can it?

Its odd.
Seosamh's Mom's recipe has raisins as an optional ingredient..
It is billed as "from the old country family recipe." It sometimes comes out a bit dry for my taste, but I do adore the ease of it, and warm and slathered in butter, it is a great joy.
From start to finish, it takes about an hour and ten minutes, and most of that is the baking time of 1 hr.
It does not use buttermilk, for reference.
Your milk and sour cream fix likely does add moisture to your rendition.
As a young woman, my grandmother, Sabina Moran Cody, emigrated from Co. Roscommon, Ireland to Bridgeport, CT. There she met and married my grandfather, who had come to the U.S. from Co. Kilkenny, Ireland. They had six children, one of whom was my father.
